Man Utd plan £150M January bid for PSG star Mbappe

Manchester United chiefs are exploring the prospect of signing PSG striker Kylian Mbappe in January after the release of Cristiano Ronaldo.

United are keen to bring in PSG and France star Mbappe in January, with the striker likely to cost them over '£150million' plus a similar wage packet to Ronaldo of around '£500,000' per week, says the Mirror.

They also report that Napoli's Victor Osimhen is being considered as a back-up striking option who may be available for January.

If Erik ten Hag could bring Mbappe in this January, it would be a major coup that could have a serious effect on the Premier League.

Despite being just 23, the Frenchman is already a World Cup winner and has scored an incredible 221 club career goals.

He put in an excellent display on Tuesday as he found the net in France's tournament opener against Australia in Qatar.

A striker of Mbappe's calibre could have a dramatic effect on United's season as they look to re-establish themselves as a Champions League club.
